Add links between people pages and user ratings

On people pages (actors, directors, producers, etc.) there are several links to sort the credits; by votes, by ratings, by year, etc. I really love those options, but there are times when I miss the additional option of applying filters based on my own user data. For instance, I'd like the option to filter the filmography to only show titles I've watched, or alternately only titles I haven't watched, based on what movies I've rated. For that matter, it could sometimes be nice to have an option to rate a movie directly from a person page instead of having to enter the movie page to do it, which could be done by adding a star button or something like that next to each title, showing your rating and/or giving you a drop-down list for applying a new rating. In short; make the person pages more alive and interactive.

I realize most of what I ask can be done already through the advanced search function, but that's a roundabout way of doing something that shouldn't be too hard to implement, based on the filters that are possible to apply other places.

Well, any filtering would be done through the advanced search (why reinvent the wheel?) but I'd like to see this done by offering ready-rolled links into the advanced search.

The star system would be interesting - it could be done with JavaScript/AJAX so it'd only appear if you moused over the item. In fact I do wonder if you could do this using a Greasemonkey script. I imagine the other features could be implemented with that too. A quick search reveals no such script currently exists.

Well, it's not so much a reinvention of the wheel as making the wheel more accessible. And I wasn't really thinking of filtering to be done through the advanced search, but rather in-place filtering similar to how filters can be applied to lists you're watching (like sort by your rating).
